Burnout is a phenomenon that occurs from the misalignment of self care and performance output. It often sneaks up slowly on people, taking months or years to develop. Then seemingly without warning and usually after a stressful event or acute illness, the wheels begin to fall off and a person finds themselves cast into the throws of burn out. Burn out syndrome can be categorized as feeling chronically fatigued, brain fogged, inexplicably anxious, emotional or depressed with a lack of basic drive and interest in work and/or usual hobbies. Angela French Naturopath has years of clinical experience supporting clients through the varying stages of burn out and helping clients understand their own unique physical and emotional cues that lead to ill health and burn out.

Inadequate and poor quality sleep has a major impact on hormonal function and overall health and wellbeing. A decent sleep means it should be easy to fall asleep and stay asleep, resulting in feeling refreshed and restored when you awake in the morning. Other signs of a good nights rest also include recalling some or all of your dreams with mouth breathing and snoring kept to a minimal or non-existent altogether.
